Loveland Ski Area opens for ski season

Skiers, snowboarders, and snow bunnies are off and running for the High Country as ski season continues to kick off in Colorado.

Loveland Ski Area in Georgetown -- about 45 miles west of Denver -- opened yesterday, starting their 75th season on the slopes.

Snowmaking crews have been busy getting one of the runs ready for skiers. There's about a foot and a half of the white powder for skiers to glide down.

"I'm so happy to be here on opening day like I usually am and I've been checking the website about five times a day to see when they would open and actually it looks better than I anticipated so the snow people did a great job getting this ready," said skier Carol Wedgwood.

Arapahoe Basin-- about 20 miles west of Loveland Ski Area-- was the first Colorado resort to start the season when it opened last Wednesday.
